Jacques and Logan paul were money-making machines in 2021…with YouTube superstars-turned-boxers reportedly raking in $63 MILLION over the past year.
Forbes just released its list of the highest-paid influencers on the social media platform on Friday… with The Problem Child coming in second place with an astonishing estimated $45 million in earnings.
The outlet reports that around $40 million of this moolah came via the boxing ring – with Jake beating on it Ben Askren in April and Tyron Woodley in August and December.
Whether Jake is considered a “real” boxer or not, the serious money he’s pocketing is not up for debate – his earnings in 2021 would have put him among the top-earning athletes last year…earning more than Canelo Alvarez, which reportedly grossed $34 million.
As for Logan – who came in at No. 8 on Forbes’ YouTube list – he reportedly earned $18 million in 2021… largely from his fight with Floyd Mayweather, his “Impaulsive” podcast and other business opportunities.
Despite the insane gains in 2021, neither Jake nor Logan could beat Mr Beast for the top spot: the king of YouTube alone grossed $54 million.
